Time slides by,
No longer ticking,
I cannot feel the individuality of the moments.
They have become lucid.

My thoughts slip by,
Starscapes passing slowly.
But, I am still me,
Trapped between dreaming and consciousness.

I am not in control,
Spiraling deeper,
Deeper into myself.
Feeling every twist and turn,
Unraveling my very soul.

The pain of who I am,
Ripping apart,
It’s excruciating.

My body blinks,
I return to me.
The clock ticks,
No time has passed.

Why should the sky be my limit when I know there's footprints on the moon?

How many times have I lied awake at night, feeling exactly like this? So wonderful! Keep writing! I eagerly await your next poem!
